Put it with Anthelme Brillat – Savarin (Meditations de Gastronomie Transcendante, 1826): “Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es” (Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are). Or with Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach (Concerning Spiritualism and Materialism, 1864): “Der Mensch ist, was er ißt” (Man is what he eats)…well, here we are: you are what you eat, you became what you are because of what you ate.
As it’s a kind of a chain, what you will become depends on what you seeded so far. (Don’t worry, you can still steer back if you are heading the wrong direction!).
Nowadays a huge variety of food halls are calling us (supermarkets, street markets, drugstores, by the farmer): everything is 365 days disposable at an almost affordable price. We choose, pay, eat.
How we obtain food, what we eat, the whole taste experience is extremely revealing about us.
Let’s start a conversation!
